Personal profile

Research Interests

As a pediatric hepatologist, I care for children with liver diseases, including those who may need a liver transplant. We have a great team who work hard to provide reassurance and care for both patients and their families during the stress of a critical illness, and I am exteremely proud to work with them. I enjoy the long term relationships that have developed with many of my patients and their families and am grateful to be a part of their lives.

My academic work is focused on improving the long term outcomes and quality of life of children with chronic illnesses particularly pediatric liver transplant recipients. Our team is studying ways to improve the lives of these patients beyond standard medical therapy through the measurement of serum biomarkers and personalizing treatment. As a Feinberg educator, I teach medical and graduate school courses, and mentor both pediatric gastroenterology fellows and residents.

Liver disease may be transient, easy to treat or chronic and even life threatening. I have three areas of focus: 1) Liver Transplantation: I care for patients requiring a liver transplant and follow them until they are old enough to move onto adult care. I am the site investigator for the Studies of Pediatric Liver Transplantation (SPLIT) study, which is the largest pediatric transplant registry in the world. 2)Autoimmune Liver Disease: This includes autoimmune hepatitis, primary sclerosis cholangitis and overlap syndrome. 3)Non alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH): I am site co-investigator for the NASH CRN, which is an NIH funded network of academic centers studying this epidemic.
